Kylian Mbappe

Real Madrid is not in the running to sign Paul Pogba again as their priority is to secure a free deal for Kylian Mbappe next summer.

Pogba, 28, has entered the final six months of his current deal at Manchester United and does not appear close to an extension.

According to reports, United has only made one formal extension offer to their £89million midfielder, which he subsequently rejected.

However, the midfielder is still waiting on a second offer to be put on the table, meaning a summer departure is currently on the cards.

Madrid has been heavily linked with Pogba in recent years, with the Bernabeu appearing his most likely destination should he depart Old Trafford.

However, French newspaper Le Parisien claims the Spanish giants are no longer in contention to sign him – because they want to focus their efforts on signing Mbappe.

The latter is in a similar predicament to France team-mate Pogba, as his contract at PSG is set to expire in the summer.

It is believed Mbappe is weighing up his options now that he is eligible to negotiate a free move elsewhere, yet Real are seemingly the frontrunners to snap him up in July.

As a result, Florentino Perez and co do not have any immediate ambitions to sign Pogba, who collects a £300,000-a-week wage.

The United ace is therefore likely to join either PSG or ex-club Juventus if he leaves Manchester as expected this summer.

Pogba has spent the last five years at United after sealing a return to the club, registering 38 goals and 51 assists in 212 appearances.
